Sonic Solutions announced today at the National Association of Broadcasters Convention (NAB) that Avid Technology, Inc. will bundle Sonic ReelDVD LE with its Avid Xpress DV v3.5 PowerPack digital video editing software and its successive products.
Based on the same Sonic DVD technology that is the standard for Hollywood title production, ReelDVD LE offers the most affordable professional DVD authoring and is designed to bring the power of DVD publishing to nonlinear video editors. The combination of Sonic’s ReelDVD LE and Avid Xpress DV software provides producers and editors with the ability to edit analog or DV video, encode projects to MPEG-2, and author compelling DVD titles with motion menus, exciting still and slide shows, multiple audio and subtitle streams, and the confidence of the highest level of DVD player compatibility. Avid Xpress DV 3.5 PowerPack, featuring ReelDVD LE, will be demonstrated in the Avid booth at NAB this week (Avid booth #SL300).
